Everywhere I go people are saying this phrase.
I KNOW, Right?
The grown-man-check-out-guy at the grocery store said it. I was appalled.
"I hope this watermelon is sweet," I small-talked. "You just never know...".
"I KNOW, right!" he responded.
I was shocked. SHOCKED! Are grown men so desperate to appear younger that they will sell their very souls to the pop culture Gods? Any respect I previously had for grocery man... out the proverbial window.
At the car wash a middle-aged woman in an Ed Hardy T-shirt (Ew!) and jeans with sparkly back pockets (Ew.) smiled at me. I smiled back.
"I can't believe it's already almost a hundred degrees outside today!" I said.
Don't judge me. What else are you supposed to say when a strange Ed Hardy lover smiles at you?
Yup. You guessed it.
"I KNOW, right?"
GAH! Does DIGNITY mean NOTHING anymore?
I must admit there was time when I, myself, said those words. I thought I was hip. Cool. Groovy.
I KNOW, Right?
It doesn't look good on me. I'm embarrassed the words ever escaped my saucy, painted mouth.
I know, right? Should only be said if you are under 15 years of age and adore Justin Beiber. And even then... Pushin' it.
I have put together a little reenactment of a convo I heard in the mall by two college-age girls.
I have exaggerated nothing.
PS I should be ashamed of myself for posting this video. Where is MY dignity?! I'm a GROWN WOMAN for Pete's sake! I shouldn't be having FUN (or talking to my camera all alone as I drive home from work)! FUN is for children and imbeciles.
I KNOW, right? Really? Really.
